Enamoured – detail
Charcoal, sap, ink on papper 150cm x 100cm
Lonely on a trip away from loved ones, I appreciated and became captivated with a wild magpie that came to visit me. Enamoured is drawn with burnt branched and sap, collected after the 2020 bushfires in Australia, which destroyed a vast amount of our wildlife’s habitat.
